Hi Kimberley

Great pics, thanks - although the mark pic a bit blurred and small - got the idea though, thanks!

This mark is from the Nippon (or Nihon) Yoko Boeki
Company (1891 – present)

I don't know too much about Japanese marks (although I am learning all the time due to this website). Yours is a rather lovely porcelain cup by Nihon Yoko Boeki who are difficult to research due to lack of information about exactly who they are and where they are based.

However, what is clear when you do a Google image search is they must be quite a sizable concern because they do a wide range of different types of ceramic wares ranging from figurines that look like Hummels to ornate jardinieres to pitchers, vases, tea cups, and virtually every type of ornament.

Nihon Yoko Boeki have been going a while, clearly, although I don't know all the details as I don't own any Japanese pottery mark encyclopedias. They apparently started using this clover mark in 1891, though this version may date from the late 1910s or early 1920s. Again, I am not sure of my facts, so you will have to research for further verification.

Hope this helps.

Best regards,

Thanks for helping me identify the maker of my teacup as Nihon Yoko Boeki.

I collect uranium glass and radioactive pottery. I have a tea cup that is very similar by the same manufacturer and it is radio active . Probably the coloring added was uranium powder.
